our first rehearsal!

Well yesterday we had our first rehearsal for our cabaret August 13th at ARS NOVA. The 4 JERSEY GIRLS and Travis Cloer (who plays Gabe and covers Frankie) are starring in this Journey of Jersey Boys directed by Des McAnuffs former right hand asst. Holly Anne Ruggiero and the music director is Jim Abbott, who just finished md-ing Tarzan.

We went thru our song choices yesterday..and we were all so enthusiastic and impressed with each other. We never get to hear each other sing. I mean yes, we’ve heard Travis’ glorious voice when he’s on as Frankie, and Sara nightly belts to the heavens Boyfriend’s Back, but I think you’re all gonna get a kick out of being part of this.

All of the sudden a quarter way thru rehearsal, we were all texting our loved ones, saying they have to attend. I even text Tim at work, and said “try to get that weekend off and fly in. It’s going to be fun. I’ll keep you updated as rehearsals progress, but keep Monday, August 13th open…

PS I love it..this week I’m seeing lots of Vegas callback kids watching the show in the back. This is the finals..with Des being here too. Good Luck you all.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Sound like it is going to be a great show. I already knew that all of the Jersey Girls can sing and are fantastic….but when Travis joined the show I did a google search for him. It lead me to his my space page.

    Well in one word. WOW!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A VOICE. His lead song for the page for a while was HOME. I often would just open is page & let the song play as I browsed the web. He also has demos from his JB’s audition & work on the cruise ships. Travis can sing ANYTHING!!!!!!!!! Anyone who get to see him perform will totally enjoy it. Best of luck with all of your rehearsals. What songs will you be doing? Maybe you can do a duet with Daniel & then one with Travis. I hope we can set that night aside & come see the show.

    Talk to ya soon,
    Love ya,

    This sounds like a great show! I’m going on a church mission trip to NYC August 4-11th , and I am going to try to stay behind a couple of days to see this! Is August 13th a firm date? You should get Susie to post this on the JB Blog…I haven’t seen any mention of this event (or did I miss it???) I always enjoy your news blogs…they paint such a vivid picture!
